    If these clouds clear out I'll be able to see it right out the window.

    Today was another milestone. The sun has moved far enough north to shine in my condo windows in the morning. In a few months the sun will be blazing into my place for several hours a day. Quite an amazing transformation.

    Ugh. Active-X / IE / proprietary stuff I was all excited to watch it on the web cam too...

    I had a hard time keeping it in focus, auto is useless because of the small size of the moon. Even on my 70-300mm telephoto.

    I had to switch to my Rebel XT (vs my Canon 40D) because I don't have a remote trigger on the 40D yet.

    Here are 10 non blurry (or only slightly blurry) shots

    Good shots. Conditions were absolutely perfect tonight. I was really ticked that I didn't get the tripod out and set up in time to get any shots of my own. Settled for going out to the deck every 20 minutes or so for the latest update. Maybe I'll be better prepared in 2010 for the next one.

    NC had a lot of clouds. Every once in a while there would a small opening and you could get one shot. There was no trial and error last night - it was mostly error. Just as it was going to 100% coverage it did clear for a bit longer. My top 10 pictures are at http://public.fotki.com/bradbradstre...02-20-eclipse/

    I played around trying to get any good shots but my point and shoot camera just doesn't have enough manual controls.
